New generation Gore-Tex Pro shell protection and minimalist design.
Greenland’s Tasermiut Fjord and the Patagonia’s Chaltén massif are at opposite ends of their hemispheres, but both have mind-bending climbing—and thoroughly drenching storms. The Patagonia Men's Super Pluma Jacket is the alpine climbing jacket of choice for balancing light-and-fast with enhanced durability and waterproof, windproof, and breathable protection. The three-layer nylon new-generation Gore-Tex Pro fabric is now significantly more breathable, but without compromising its legendary protection or durability. The face fabric has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, and the interior has a minimalist yet distinct micro-grid backer that optimizes breathability.
The Super Pluma's helmet-compatible, two-way-adjustable Optimal Visibility Hood has a laminated visor and sleek Touch Point System embedded cord locks that allow quick adjustments. This system is also present in the hem, and low-profile cuff closures with pleated gussets that create a tight wrist seal to keep out the elements. Underarm zips allow you to cool off without opening the jacket, and underarm gussets keep the jacket down when you raise your arms. The pressed-pleat torso pockets are streamlined so you can see your
feet, while trim, watertight zippers make for clean and easy underarm
zips and pocket openings.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
My size 6'2'' and 187 lb. Cool jacket, but the sizing is a little off. I first tried on the large, but the large was baggy in the stomach area and then the medium and it fit well, the medium just gives me enough room to layer with a down piece. Without the sizing issue the jacket is nicely constructed and the look is smooth.
